Hello, sorry for my bad English
anyway
i had like 4 GB of photos in the usb flash drive
and i opened a new folder for them in some Internet cafe in Argentina.
and now i cant reach the photos in the folder.
the folder seem to be empty but i'm sure the folder was with the photos because i remember i saw the photos in Peru and i added to the flash drive more 9 GB of photos.
and when i plugged in the flash drive in the first time the windows asked me if i want to fix the problem in the card and i clicked yes.

the computer show that the drive is almost full with 15 GB
and inside the drive when i select all the files it show only the drive is 10 GB of files
is there any way to get back the photos?

Hi there,

I would try with the attrib command from the command prompt. Write attrib -h -r -s /s /d z:\*.* , where
"z" is the letter of the USB flash. This solution sometimes resolves the hidden files issue. Give it a try. You could check the drive on different PCs.

Hope this helps

Well, that is unfortunate. I hoped that this would solve it. Could you try the same in Safe Mode with CMD? Can you confirm that "show hidden files" is checked from the folder options? Check on a different PC, even on a different OS.
